Synergy Multi-Academy Trust is made up of schools, both secondary and primary, from north Norfolk. The Trust was initially established by Reepham High School and College in 2015. Our vision is simple; for all of our schools to work together to provide teaching and learning of the highest quality and for all of them to provide an exceptional range of educational experiences and opportunities.
Fakenham Junior School follows the National Curriculum. The Long-Term Plan ensures that the coverage is broad and balanced. You can find detailed information on the School Website. Topic Grids for each term are pasted into Home Learning Diaries.
At FJS the children's learning is promoted through a variety of subject focussed topics, integrating several aspects of study and introducing diversity of culture, faith and ethnicity. This is underpinned by daily English and Maths lessons. The school is continuing the focus on PHSE, including Sex and Relationships Education.
First Hand Experience
Children learn best when their attention is caught and their imaginations are stimulated by lively teaching.
Direct observation leads to questioning and discussion. Children are encouraged to pursue their investigations in the school library, using technology or by other means. In this way independent and enquiring minds are fostered.
Visits and visitors play an important part. Both local day visits to places of interest, and residential visits further afield are important. There is an opportunity to take part in a residential visit in Year 6.
Gifted and talented
We welcome the challenge of providing an appropriate, supportive curriculum to enable each pupil who has been identified as one of the most-able or talented to reach their full potential. This is done through extension activities, such as open-ended tasks and activities which promote higher order thinking and questioning.
We also aim to provide enrichment activities, such as school clubs, projects with Fakenham Academy, visiting experts and focused group work.
The school will seek to discover and utilise a range of strategies to challenge these pupils in line with the National Quality Standards.
